An 18-year-old man has died in hospital following a shooting Friday afternoon in Abbotsford.

Abbotsford police Const. Ian Macdonald says police responded to a 911 call at 3:20 p.m. PT Friday near George Ferguson Way and Oriole Crescent.

When police arrived, Macdonald says they found a severely wounded man with a suspected gunshot wound to the chest near a crashed Chrysler 300.

The young man was taken to hospital but died shortly afterwards.

Macdonald says there have, as yet, been no arrests and suspects the shooting was targeted.
